The Origins of 089 is a 2 minute special that focuses on 089's backstory. 


089 has just been built at the factory to be shipped to Tankopia. Chance trains 089, and shows him the ropes of a railway. But with the railway controller acting suspicious, engines dissapearing and dangerous weapons transported across frozen seas, 089 must discover the villans that Connor will face in his quest to save the world and to fulfill a eternal prophecy. With a brave band of friends and a vicious vile of villans, 089 will solve the mysteries of the LNER and discover that not everyone in the world is good.
